Program Title: Digital Learning Initiatives at Dartmouth College: Innovation and Leadership In The Liberal Arts
Speaker: Joshua Kim, PhD, Director of Digital Learning Initiatives atDartmouth's Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL)
Some of the questions that we will explore together include:
- How will Dartmouth build on our recognized position as a leader in liberal arts education?
- How is teaching and learning changing in higher education, and what role will Dartmouth play in leading these changes?
- What is the role of digital learning in a traditional residential liberal arts institution, and how can technology further a core mission built on a rigorous and intimate education?
- What is the role of online learning, including small degree programs and massively open online courses (MOOCs), at a residential liberal arts institution such as Dartmouth College?
